Abstract

This study examined the stability of the morning blood pressure surge (MBPS) and its relation to blood pressure (BP) reactivity in untreated hypertensives. Thirty-six participants completed a stress task at baseline. Ambulatory BP monitoring was carried out three times on a weekday. The MBPS demonstrated small reproducibility and large coefficient of variation. The MBPS correlated with nighttime BP (p = 0.001) but not morning BP or BP reactivity. Dippers had greater MBPS than did nondippers (p <0.05). The MBPS provides distinct information that is different from the BP response to mental stress.
